Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State Athletics and KBEACH are proud to announce a joint effort to bring Long Beach State Men's Basketball to the airwaves. Every single 49er men's basketball game will have live audio coverage on KBEACH as well as longbeachstate.com, with Rob Brender once again calling the action.
Long Beach State and KBEACH first came together to provide a joint broadcast at the end of the 2012-13 season, and the positive results from that venture has led both sides to commit to a full slate of games for the 2013-14 campaign.
Rob Brender returns for his fifth season as the play-by-play voice of the 49ers, and will call the action for the entire season of Long Beach State basketball.
With the agreement from KBEACH, each broadcast can be heard locally on HD Radio 88.1-3, or through their online platform at KBEACH.org. Broadcasts can also be heard on the go on smartphones and tablets through the KBEACH app. Additionally, all home games will feature video streaming through www.bigwest.org/tv.
"This is a great way to increase the ways that we can involve students in live broadcasting on campus," said Danny Lemos, KBEACH Station Advisor. "It's very exciting to be able to include live sports in our programming, and the increased traffic we saw for the games that were carried last season shows that the interest is there from our audience."
Additionally, plans are in place to increase coverage on KBEACH to other sports, starting with women's basketball as early as this season.
"The agreement is mutually beneficial for everyone involved," said Assistant Athletics Director for Media Relations, Roger Kirk. "This is a chance for fans to listen to Long Beach State on the radio, and we're excited for the opportunity to provide the entire schedule with this unique arrangement."
The first broadcast will occur in two weeks, as Long Beach State begins the 2013-14 season by hosting Hawaii Pacific in the school's annual Homecoming Game at 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 9.
